You must have magnetic ballasts.

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
The electronic ballasts run at some number of KHz the eye can not follow, compared to magnetic at 60 HZ where many see as stress inducing flicker, myself included. In fact it is the flicker that set me to consulting with brother in law lighting engineer to see if the problem could be cured. I have electronic ballast fixtures in the lumber shed and they have never failed to start at least down to the 20 F range.
That said, the LED should in principle get brighter when cold.
